firstname.lastname@example.org says...Did you get the photos of the flooring I sent? You may be able to enlarge these.
Becky says...Edel kindly sent me the photos from Swantje's book so I think I already have these, thank you. It's interesting as each cottage seems to have some variation, my pillars seem most like one that was auctioned on lot-tissimo.com (in my Pinterest album) but it differs from the designs in the book...
email@example.com says...Yes, I think there was a little of the original gold paint, particularly on the banisters On page 270 of Swanje's book there are 2 Cottages, both have a little gold work on them, particularly on the door and windows downstairs.I have cleaned off all the rest of the gold work. I am sure this was a thick gold pencil as it came off easily, whereas the other, even when the top layers were cleaned, there seemed to be a remainder of the original. In the pictures all gold work was horizontal, except for one picture where the gold work curves round the pillars. I can send you a picture of this if you want one.. .
Edel says...So far I've only seen Hacker houses in pictures and not in the "flesh" (or should that be "wood"?), but they seem to me to be among the best finished of the well-known German makes. Gottschalk can be quite rough, and I recently acquired what I think is a Wagner house in very worn but original condition and it has no finish at all! I think it never encountered sandpaper or a file in the course of its production (it's still utterly charming, pictures soon). But this Hacker house and the others on the site look far superior in workmanship. It will be lovely to follow your progress with this!
Barbara says...Absolutely lovely, I bought some thin picture frame glass for my hacker and that seems to work well. Good luck with the wallpapers maybe they are underneath as mine were.
